Le tryptique aéroportuaire lyonnais: une analyse géographique des installations, du trafic, des horizons aériens et de l'aire de desserte terrestre de l'aéroport de Lyon-Satolas

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



On 1975 the brand new airport of Satolas was opened to traffic. Located 25kms of Lyon, it was due to replace the former Bron airport, wich was unable to cope with the traffic forecasts. The booming development that occured since is reviewed but some shadows are observed. The paper also brings a methodological contribution to the geography of air transport since the concept of "airport's tryptic" is defined wherein the aiport plays as a place of interchange between its hinterland and foreland| because appropriate statistical data are lacking, foreland and hinterland connections of Satolas are reviewed successively, instead of simultaneously as it would be desirable.
